The total digitization of production, already called the «fourth industrial revolution» by experts, is now also making its appearance in Austria. Röchling Leripa Papertech is the first company to address the forward-looking theme of Industry 4.0 and developing a new «smart» product line called Robasmart.
Robasmart works according to the «smart» principle. Individual values are read by means of a mini-server specially developed for the purpose from the wireless devices and sensors with which the wear parts are equipped, and passed on to the control cabin of the paper machine. Any corrections that are found to be necessary can then be carried out manually or fully automatically with the smart system, which can be switched on and off. The familiar surface design is retained and is expanded with additional information. The individual components of the paper machine can be fitted separately and also retrofitted at any time.
